The New Resume?

With today’s economy … being what it is … and the increased competition, and/or diminished available positions within many fields, Colin Dobrin of mindflash.com provides an interesting take on the resume. I’ve seen a few of these creative incarnations, but I’m curious if they’re articulated in other fields other than, say, Graphic Design.

I can’t imagine updating this beauty each and every time, within InDesign — but then again, it’s not my specialty. It won’t transfer to those #@$ forced — and amazingly intuitive — online application forms, obviously. And last time I checked, the common thought was to ditch the whole “Objectives/Goals” heading, as it was outdated and repetitive. Regardless, I like the visual, and its intention to stand out from the onslaught of a seemingly endless parade of resumes.

Depression & The Job Search

How to Overcome Depression in Your Job Search

Great synopsis by Suzannah Scully (Yahoo! Contributor Network, March 21, 2011) on a presentation by Richard Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute. He presents the two types of depression, situational and clinical; and how situational depression can be brought on during a trying time in one’s life. Situational depression is temporary, and there are things one can do to alleviate it.

“While searching for a new job can be exciting, it can also be lengthy, arduous and frustrating.” Bolles breaks down the experience of depression into four parts – Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual — and provides advice on how to overcome each.
